Rockefeller Student Assistant Profile: Nick Judson '14

During the break, we are taking the time to appreciate the many student program assistants that help the Rockefeller Center run smoothly. Without the support and time of these students, many of our programs would not yield the same impact and outreach that currently exists for Dartmouth students. This series of posts will document the daily tasks of student program assistants, what they do, and anything else they care to share about their experiences. Today we have Nick Judson, a member of the class of 2014 pursuing an Economics major with a minor in Markets, Management, and the Economy through the Sociology Department. 

   What are you involved in on campus?
I am currently a Student Assistant at the Rockefeller Center, President of the Ivy Council, Finance & Strategy Director of The Dartmouth, and member of Psi Upsilon Fraternity

Staff Profile: Meet Andrea Allbee

Andrea Allbee - Financial Manager

What was your most rewarding collegiate experience as an undergraduate or graduate?
My most rewarding undergraduate experience was conducting a national survey on police psychologists and presenting my findings at an undergraduate research conference.

Why did you choose to work at Dartmouth College, and/or what do you currently most enjoy about your position and/or field of interest?

I enjoy working in an academic environment where learning is going on all around me, while at the same time being able to utilize my skills as an accountant.  I particularly enjoy working at the Rockefeller Center because there are so many opportunities to experience and learn new things.

What is your most important message to pass on to students?

Never stop learning.  I think Franklin Pierce Adams said it best, “I find that a great part of the information I have, was acquired by looking up something and finding something else on the way.”

What was your most rewarding collegiate experience as an undergraduate or graduate?
My most rewarding collegiate experience was doing a summer research assistantship at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System after my second year of graduate school.  It was an opportunity to be immersed in a strong economic research environment, and it opened my eyes to the relevance of public policy and the many ways to put an economics Ph.D. to work.
